Stephen Colbert Interview

The Onion’s AV Club has an interview with Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Report and the man who coined the American Dialect Society’s 2005 Word of the Year: truthiness.

At certain angles, there are monitors behind Jon that have the world going on, which implies that that’s where the news is, and that’s where the information is, and the person in front of it is the conduit through which this information is given to you. But on my set, I said, ‘I don’t want anything behind me, because I am the sun. It all comes from me. I’m not channeling anything. I am the source.’”
